Turkey Pot Pie

This is going to be a great Pot Pie to use up some of that left over Turkey that we will be having after the big feast. It will also be a great Pot Pie to use with left over chicken. This is a easy pie to put together and the taste is fabulous, thick and rich with the wonderful flavors of fall. The pie filling would be great for mini pies or just over hot biscuits. We will be making this pie over and over, sure hope you enjoy the Turkey Pot Pie as much as we did.

Turkey Pot Pie


For several years I have participated in The Secret Recipe Club, which means every month I get to cook from someones blog in my group. My assigned blog this month is Sarah's Kitchen. Sarah started her blog in 2008 and has some great recipes on her blog. In 2002 Sarah moved to Houston from Kent, England and became an American Citizen in 2010. She loves to cook and bake and enjoys crafting. One of the great recipes that I found on Sarah's blog was her Bacon Cheeseburger Meatballs, but I finally made a decision to make the wonderful Turkey Pot Pie.

I did add some seasons to the recipe and increased the poultry by 1/2 cup. I also changed the directions for the sauce. We just loved this pie and sure hope you enjoy as much as we did. This pie went so fast we had no left overs.

Adapted from Sarah's Kitchen
Ingredients
1 top and 1 bottom unbaked pie crust for a 9 to 10 inch pie
4 tablespoons butter
1 small onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
3 tablespoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon thyme
salt and pepper to taste
2 cubes chicken bouillon
2 cups warm water
3 potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
2 cups cooked Turkey or Chicken
Directions
Preheat oven to 425
Place the bottom pie crust into the pie pan and set aside
Place the cubes of chicken bouillon  into 2 cups warm water to dissolve the cubes
Place 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet. Add the onion, celery, carrots, parsley, oregano, poultry seasoning, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the vegetables are soft. Stir in the chicken bouillon water. Bring mixture to a boil, stir in the potatoes, and cook until tender, but still firm.
In a medium saucepan, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in the flour until it is melted with the butter, then add the milk and stir until smooth, may need to add more milk, if it is to thick. Add the sauce to the vegetable mix and stir mixing completely.Add the turkey and mix well. Cook the mixture until it thickens stirring. Pour the mixture into the unbaked pie shell. Roll out the top crust and place on top of the filling. Flute edges, and make 4 slits in the top crust to let out steam.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking for 20 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
